Dr. Ellyn Sawyer completed her undergraduate and doctoral degrees at North Carolina State University.  After veterinary school, she completed a small animal internship at the University of Georgia.

Next, she moved to Los Angeles to work at a busy 24-hour clinic in West Hollywood. After 4 years on the west coast, she and her husband headed back east to Atlanta. There she worked in a great clinic for the past 7 years. It was a hard place to leave, but she finally convinced her husband to move home to North Carolina this spring.

Her husband is also a veterinarian and together they have two young children and a very senior miniature poodle. She enjoys almost every part of veterinary medicine, but the part she values most is building relationships with pets and their families. She is so excited to start this next chapter in such a wonderful part of Raleigh.
